Leading organisations across all sectors are putting mental health and wellness issues on the boardroom agenda. Mental health issues cost UK employers £45 billion, and more needs to be done to tackle the challenge in the workplace. The more conversations we have about mental health the more barriers we can break down – minimising the isolation, shame, and worthlessness too many of us feel when experiencing a mental health problem.
We are delighted to announce Melanie Calver, BPDTS Digital Service Practice Manager received the TechWomen100 Award. As a chronic multitasker, Melanie volunteers at local schools as a mentor for girls, works as a consultant and project manager and provides counsel and safe harbour in Living Leader meetings.
The celebration of World Values Day is something we should strive to do daily. Central to this year’s theme is wellbeing. Living our lives following our values is empowering. Our values represent who we are; they inspire and motivate us to do everything – right and wrong. It’s our values that define and shape us, and the world we live in.
Jordan McNally, Events and Engagement Co-ordinator and MADE representative for Manchester, BPDTS Ltd, shares the work our people are doing as volunteers and fundraisers for local charities.
